En route to the championship, the Voodoos opened with an 82-68 win over the No. 2 (A) ranked Kelowna Christian Knights. Wambacher had 26 to lead all scorers.
In the semifinal, the Voodoos defeated Valleyview from Kamloops 70-38. Prabhtej Deol had 13 points for RSS, as 11 different Voodoos reached the scoresheet.
